On Halloween, some people end up being really mean to other people, sometimes unintentionally and sometimes on purpose.
Some considerations for avoiding being a jerk:
Not everyone likes to be startled or scared:
- Scaring people is a major part of Halloween tradition, and…
Also please don’t be an ass and tell children they’re going to hell or celebrating the devil’s birthday.
That’s great that you believe that but you really shouldn’t need to scare a child into worshipping your God in your particular way.
Yes, that too.
If you’re a member of a faith that seeks converts, share your message with consenting adults. Don’t harass children. (Or anyone else, for that matter. But especially kids.)
